A crowd gathered as pumps were brought down. I bumped into Tom Plaster (who I knew at encoding/loudeye, and works at amazon last I knew) who has worse flooding problems than I. Most of us ended up buying simple utility pumps - sit on the floor, pump water out a hose - because we realized that getting a second sump pump into the sump would likely be problematic. better to get the water out first and worry about the sump pump later.
$70! And I forgot to use the amex.
Anyway, now to find my hose and get this thing going.
